Yerevan Ready to Continue Dialogue with Baku for Karabakh Settlement

PanARMENIAN.Net - "We are ready to continue dialogue with Azerbaijan for the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict and with Turkey on establishing relations without any preconditions," Armenian President Robert Kocharian stated when addressing Black Sea Forum for Dialogue and Partnership. "The people of Nagorno Karabakh have implemented in practice the right for self-determination. It was done fully in line with the requirements of international law. Results of the referendum on independence were later defended in the war forced on that people. These events developed in the timeframe of global changes, related to the collapse of the Soviet Empire. That situation is classical for cases of self-determination through secession," Robert Kocharian said.



"Now for fifteen years Nagorno Karabakh Republic continues to prove its right for independence by own achievements in effective statecraft. A whole generation grew up there, which watches itself as possessors and defenders of that statehood. We believe that there is a need for effective efforts for a full-scale integration of the Republic in the international society," the Armenian President remarked.
